NATURAL AND SYNTHETIC FIBRES, DIMENSIONS VARIABLE
COURTESY OF THE ARTIST,
COMMISSIONED BY THE SAUDI ART COUNCIL FOR 21,39 (2018)

The laboriously handcrafted sculptures are made in natural and synthetic fibers that are woven together. The weavings communicate layers of four poems written by the artist’s grandfather, Mohammed bin Ahmed Al-Sudairy, a prominent cultural and literary figure known for his poetry. By reconstructing verses into visual structures, the hanging textile transforms the experience of poetry into flexible means of exploring space.
